Great Gym, fully Kitted out. I survived it and will be back in a couple of weeks. Thanks to PT Marvin.
Excellent gym, full Eleiko set up, some great conditioning stations too, perfect for our drop in while in Bournemouth for the weekend!
Visited Bournemouth for couple of days and trained at 180 Strength. Lovely atmosphere and great equipment. I’d recommend visiting the gym if you’re around!
Came down from birmingham for the weekend with a couple of friends.Excellent gym, clean and professional comp spec equipment, very friendly and helpful staff would recommend to any travelling lifter who needs a gym to train at with a positive atmosphere easy 5/5 :)Thanks 180Strength
Excellent facilities and equipment with a friendly and welcoming team.
A very nice, clean and extremely well equipped facility. Easy to find. Great staff and owners. Thank you for having me.
great facility with top spec equipment, great coaching and a fantastic environment for lifting. If you live local or are in the area, this place will cater for your strength needs!
Great gym for those looking for a PT with lots of experience. Evening classes available on a regular basis. Highly recommended.
An amazing gym for powerlifters as it has a full set of comp equipment. I was visiting Bournemouth so trained here as a one off, the vibe was great, so far from your usual commercial gym. You can tell the owners have put a lot of work into creating a great lifting space... only wish there was one closer to where I live! More...

180 Strength is a great gym with experienced coaches and really friendly customers. Everyone is welcome regardless of their aims or abilities; whether you just want to get fit, improve your lifts, learn good form with weights or whether you need rehab following injury. I joined just over a year ago with no weights experience at all and quickly decided that I love it! More...
I have been training at 180 for just over a year now. The gym is always clean and well laid with the most fundamental equipment without being over run with machines. The staff are friendly and always willing to help, whether it’s a question about an exercise or just helping out with a spot! Always a nice experience going in here. More...
A fantastic gym! If you want to surround yourself with people that are serious about training and are also genuinely interested in the progress of the other gym members then start training here. There's a great sense of community in the gym and I thoroughly enjoyed my time lifting there. More...
The best S&C gym I`ve ever been to. Great atmosphere and guys there are really knowledgeable and experienced. Always happy to spot. I have been in pretty much every gym in the area - and prefer 180 Strength to all of them! More...
I joined 180 Strength about a year ago and use Kevin Yeung as a PT. He was great in guiding me towards my personal fitness goals. He is knowledgeable and dedicated. My kicking averages in rugby increased dramatically as a result- thanks Kevin! The gym has a great vibe about it. All the trainers are friendly and approachable. Owen, Tommy, James and the rest make a great team. I look forward to my gym sessions at 180 Strength! More...
180 is the best gym... and I’ve been a member of a fair few. The coaches are World class, they really get to know us all and what our strengths and weaknesses are to give hints and tips to improve. I get to train with people from all walks of life and have made some fantastic friends. More...
They hosted such a great powerlifting competition. It was run so well, everyone was great. Awesome facilities and lovely atmosphere!
Excellent Comp this morning at 180 Strength! Slick as always! Everyone- staff, volunteers and other competitors were so friendly and so supportive! Ended the day on a Deadlift PB! Couldn’t ask for more! More...
I was searching for a gym where I could train amongst like minded people that where serious & dedicated to weight training.Strength 180 has not only ticked all the boxes regarding facilities but the staff are 2nd to none .They are all so helpful ,friendly and totally professional & all have so much fitness/strength training knowledge.The gym has a club feel where all the coaches and members make it a family ,not just a gym ! More...
Great gym, very professional, and James is a superb coach. He'll make you want to push yourself to your absolute limit everytime, can already feel the benefits!
Owen Hubbard has been my trainer for over the last 4 years. He has helped to develop a balanced fitness and nutritional programme for my development. I have always recovered 1st class advise and guidance and I am extremely happy with the results. I would highly recommend this personal trainer who makes training enjoyable and achievable.. More...
Power Hour with Owen Hubbard is the best reason to get up early on a Saturday!
With an ever changing schedule of circuits, equipment and techniques and the experience of it all on Sandbanks beach, the session gets the body working as well as the mind relaxing the stress of the week away.
Owen is very motivating and personable and so I recommend his sessions to anyone and everyone. More...
I have been training at 180 degree gym now for just over a year. I am amazed at how my body has changed and how dedicated you become to keeping your body in this amazing shape and fitness. I have recommended a few people to go along and meet the team and almost all of them have joined. I am forever grateful for what my body has allowed me to do and even more thankful to the team at 180 Degree Gym. More...
I have been training with James from 180 Degrees for 2 years now and I love it!!!! Each session is different and I've found muscles that I never knew I had! The new gym is a great place to work out in and there's always a great atmosphere. James is really easy to work with, very patient and great fun. The bootcamp classes that they run are great as well. Definitely a 5* rating from me :) More...
I have been training with James for 12 months now and with personal trainers for the last 14 years!! I have found James knowledge and trainig style one of the best that i have ever trianed with and the results over the last 9 months have been fantastic. I suffered with a slipped disk just over a year ago and was worried that i would struggle to get back to full fitness. I am now there and with his guidence am now outlifting more than I ever have before. Very happy and love the new gym and its fantastic equipment. Great enviroment with the club feeling and Boatyard cafe withh friendly staff. Great juices also!! More...
Brilliant place, really nice staff and breakfast are good. great place to stop after riding around the harbour, or for a early afternoon beer.
180 Strength is an excellent strength and conditioning gym. The equipment is top quality, and the atmosphere is perfect for those competing in strength sports, as well as for those working hard to achieve their strength or physique personal goals.
Anyone looking to join a gym in Bournemouth must check 180 Strength out! More...

Visited my friend tom who's a member while on holiday and wow amazing gym, great powerlifting setup and good equipment! nice friendly environment too. Wish i lived nearby!
Came to this gym with no prior knowledge of strength training and six months down the line I am addicted! All thanks to the combination of the knowledgeable, dedicated coaches and the comfortable training atmosphere. Can’t recommend this place enough to all ages and ability. More...

Great strength training gym, right in the middle of town. The obvious choice for any powerlifters or weightlifters in Bournemouth! (Just make sure you avoid the Welshman by the door). More...
All the trainers at 180 Strength have a wealth of experience and the equipment is perfect for anyone looking to get fit and strong. I joined the gym a few months ago because of my passion for powerlifting and thanks to Owen, Jack and especially Kevin my technique has greatly improved. I highly recommend booking PT sessions because they take a close look at your strengths and weaknesses and create a training program that suits your goals. My only regret is that I haven't found this gym earlier. More...
Well equipped gym, great atmosphere and friendly people. Great for getting things done around like-minded people.
High quality facilities with knowledgeable instructors - especially ideal for anyone wanting to pursue functional strength programmes.
This is a top end strength training gym for all. The equipment is second to none, trainers are fantastic and have many world class accolades between them. The other members are friendly and are of all types of skill level. The place is built on an environment of continuous learning, which is really rare. What are you waiting for?! More...
Friendly proffesional team
A really great gym with such amazing equipment!!!
The friendliest gym I have ever visited. Great trainers and great personal achievements by everyone whether starter or advanced and tailored to suit you as required. Absolutely smashing!
I really enjoy the mix of different trainers and the variety of lunchtime classes during the week. The trainers have all enabled me to achieve some personal goals while helping to perfect my technique and avoid injuries. I would recommend it to anyone.
A fantastic place filled with friendly faces. Would recommend to anyone who has a love for fitness and strength building!
One of the better strength gyms around the area. If you are looking to train properly and have an environment to do so, then this is definitely the gym for you.
Best independant gym group I have been a part of, great trainers, staff and spaces (Bournemouth and Sanbanks). Combined knowledge of all the team is incredible and they cater for every need and goal. If you are looking to join a friendly and supportive gym then I highly HIGHLY recommend. (Also the beach boot camps on a Saturday morning are so good I drive back from London some weekends to attend!!) More...
Fantastic, friendly gym. Extremely well equipped for a small gym. The Personal Trainers are consummate professionals and able to cater to all ages and abilities, they've certainly helped me no end!
Just right Gym Club.
Theo van den Berg
Perfect Gym for people who want to get into weightlifting or just want to lose fat. I walked in on the first day and I was stunted, no minimum membership time. no fees, nothing, that's very rare nowadays. The coaches helped out when I had a question, really awesome staff. Sadly I'm not living in Bournemouth anymore, but I know where I can find the perfect gym for me, at 180 Degrees. More...
I've been coming to this gym since it opened. Brand-new equipment and the staff know what they are doing. Any personal training that is needed you'll find it here. I come on my lunch break, shower and then back to work. More...
A cosy Strength & Conditioning Suite that has the essential equipment for hardcore working out. Fitness goals are accessible for all due to the staffing team who are well qualified and experienced trainers and sportsmen. This sets the scene for a good work out environment and is more than affordable for the average joe compared to many strength & conditioning or crossfit suites. More...
180 Degrees is a fantastic gym with amazing staff who are always on hand to help with training or nutritional advice. I am so happy I signed up to one of their programmes, the support and encouragement they each give you is incredible and really pushes you to give it your all, it's the best thing I've ever signed up to!
I've been going to the gym 3 to 4 times each week since January attending the lunchtime classes run by the gym instructors. The classes are challenging but great fun. The gym guys are really encouraging and really know their stuff. They vary the exercises and intensity regularly to ensure we get the most out of the classes. It is a really friendly gym where everyone is welcome regardless of ability. More...
Carlsberg don't do gyms but...
Where to start, I had given up hope of ever being motivated and enjoying exercise again. I was overweight and had tried literally everything. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and desperately needed help. From the first contact with James my spirits were lifted. My nutrition was scrutinised and goals set. Who knew that I would enjoy going to the gym at 6am! That I can't wait to get there to see my new friends who support me as much as I do them. We are on a mission together. Don't ever give up go to 180!! I can't recommend them enough. More...
Lovely location, great cafe overlooking the sea, delicious food, juices, coffee or wine. Really nice place to go and have Sundowners in the summer or have a Roast dinner on any Sunday. Friendly staff. Lovely informal relaxed gym, with really friendly PT staff and treatment rooms also offering massage and physio - a hidden gem! More...
Amazing inspirational staff with modern equipment and a great cafe for a coffee afterwards too.Come on down.
The best decision of my life so far......Before i made the decision to contact James at 180 degrees i was very un-happy with my weight, fitness and my self esteem was at an all time low. I had tried all of the usual diets that had worked initially but once you stop and lapse the weight creeps back on. I cycle, swim and walk for exercise but my weight and fitness did not seem to improve.I had driven past 180 degrees lots of times but was a bit apprehensive to contact James, ( I so wish i had contacted him much sooner) as i did not think i was fit enough.Meeting James was a delight and talking through diet, and exercise was so interesting as he explained about the fantastic Biosignature system.The first workout my energy levels were all over the place and i was amazed at how unfit i was. What with bragging to James at how fit i was.....ha.After 11 weeks of James’s guidance in both diet and exercise I have gone from 12st 8 lb to 11st 4lbs. The diet is not a diet but a way of life now with a few cheat meals thrown in. I am amazed at how much my body has changed and family and work colleagues notice all of the time my shape change. I am eating more of the right things and losing an amazing amount of body fat in the right places. I feel healthy, happy and so much fitter with lots of energy. This is now a way of life and no going back, some days i have to check in with my eating as i do go off the rails but my body soon tells me i have eaten the wrong thing.Seeing James will also become a part of my routine as he gives me the boost i need and also it reminds not to cheat. You have to drink plenty of water 3ltrs a day which i found hard to start with but now once again routine takes over.In your life you automatically put up barriers to change without knowing it, if you make one change make a visit to 180 degrees one of them, you will be amazed at how much better, energised and healthier you will feel.I would recommend this to everyone if they value their long term health.A very happy client More...
Fantastic service, brilliant advice and I'm feeling better than ever.
I really enjoy the variation in the training and enjoyment of working muscle groups in different ways. I have really benefitted from a fresh regime with the help of 180 degrees personal trainers.
Would not hesitate in recommending the guys at 180 Degrees Gym. They are very helpful and have helped me transform into the person I am today.
My experience with 180 degrees was outstanding. They are very professional and continue to help me progress quickly towards my goals.
I can't thank 180 degrees enough for the amazing results I've achieved thanks to James and the team. After 2 babies I needed some help loosing the baby weight and getting back into shape. The fitness programme and diet plan they came up with isn't something I would have done by myself. I would have focused on cardio and calorie intake but they designed a high intensity fitness routine around weights, interval training and focusing on different areas of the body each session and combining that with a balanced nutrition plan designed for me around protein intake and healthy eating, I have lost almost 1 and half stone. I am fitter and leaner than ever and even have abs! They are tough and relentless and an hour of lunges and squats is a killer but they really know what they are doing! Whatever your goals, whether it be to get fit, loose weight, gain lean muscle mass - I can't recommend them highly enough. More...
I have had wonderful training and advice from Celina. I have really noticed a big difference and couldn't recommend her highly enough.
1 week in, been tough, mainly the diet though! Love their no nonsense attitude, go hard or go home! Full commitment needed to get the best out of this but so far worth every penny and then some! Thanks guys
I have been training with 180 Degrees for 3 years+ and I can't recommend them highly enough. Professional, knowledgeable, motivating and inspiring, I have never stayed with a gym for this long and have never committed to exercise so consistently - James and his team are brilliant! Really good fun, welcoming and keen to help you reach your goals. Uniquely, each trainer has a different specialist sport and interests, GB Power lifting, GB Bobsleigh, Semi - Pro Football, Ultra Marathon, Nutrition and Women's health..If you are making the decision to get healthy and don't want to be a number in a impersonal gym..look no further! More...
Going to the gym used to be running on the treadmill then job done. The amazing team at 180 Degrees Bournemouth got me lifting weights, (which I thought was not cool for a woman, boy was I wrong- love every minute of it now-:), they plan excises to suit ones needs, support, motivate, and friendly as well- (Normally at the end of the session when they are not asking you to do 20 squats) . Last week I joined the strong and sassy afternoon sessions it is hard but, I feel fabulous and full of energy. Thank you so much. More...
I attend Re-Born Beach boot camp once a week and thoroughly enjoy the diversity of exercises, or drills James puts us through! I regularly went to the gym before starting so I was not out of shape, but still get a huge amount from the weekly sessions, so it is suitable for all levels of fitness. It is highly motivating, diverse in the exercises we do and a really enjoyable way to start the day. Cant recommend it highly enough. More...
